Students interested in our High School Diploma program or the High School Equivalency Certificate must first view our orientation video in order to decide which program they are best suited for. 


For students who wish to complete their High School Diploma, the school offers a WASC approved 190 credit diploma program. A member of the counseling department will review your transcript and determine which classes you need to complete your diploma.


In order to achieve a Diploma, students must have the following credits completed: (each class is worth 5 credits)

We strongly recommend you consider the HiSet High School Equivalency Certificate if you need more than 45 credits to complete the High School Diploma program.
Typically, it takes one school year for the average student to complete 30 credits. Whereas, the HiSet Equivalency Certificate exams typically take the average student only 9 months to complete.
Of course, it is up to you to decide which option would best suit your needs. 
Escondido Adult School has an official Pearson Vue testing lab that is an official testing site for the GED,  HiSET, and many other tests. These tests must be taken at an official testing center. They cannot be taken at home as some Internet sites suggest!

Once you have decided which option is best for you, please click on the registration link above, titled, "Register Here!". Be sure to indicate in the registration form whether you would like to enroll in the HiSet High School Equivalency Certificate program OR the High School Diploma Program.
